The circuit diagram is correct, however the coordinates listed for the Buzzer and the Jumper Wires that connect the Buzzer to the RedBoard are incorrect. The correct coordinates are:

Component RedBoard Breadboard Breadboard
G6
(Buzzer +)
G8
(Buzzer -)
Jumper Wire Digital Pin 6 J6
Jumper Wire J8 GND Rail
( - )
